CRS, it looks to me to be a hot cut chisel in a simple wedge shape, held by split bamboo instead of tongs, being struck by a helper with  dog head hammer. (The assistant has his thumb on top of the handle. Flame wars: Go! :rolleyes:)

The master is holding the blade with tongs in his gloved left hand.
